The readers submitted some questions about life, love and everything in between. I answered them as honest as I knew possible. I’m here to keep it real with you when no one else is and to answer with no judgment because I don’t know you! I’m just a college senior who enjoys giving his opinion. Here are some of the questions I got this week:

What are the last 5 things you spent money on? Would you say it was worth it?

I got myself Taco Bell for lunch, a choker and knuckle rings from Forever 21, a book from Books-A-Million called “Milk and Honey” by Rupi Kaur, Outback for dinner last night and I paid for my own domain with Squarespace. I’d like to think it was all worth it, yeah. I wish I would spend less money eating out though. I do have plenty of food at home.

Do you pluck your eyebrows?

No, I wish I could do my own brows, but I’m too scared I’ll make them too thin. I do get my eyebrows waxed though by Stephanie at Happy Nails. If I am back home I like to see Julie at the Nail Spa. I don’t know what I would do without them.

What is your biggest pet peeve?

I hate having my time wasted.

What has been your biggest struggle while in college?

Getting out of bed is forever my biggest struggle. I don’t know what I am going to do when I’m out of college and am working like a nine to five because I can barely wake myself up for a 9:30 a.m. class. I need to learn when to turn off the television and force myself to get up and be productive.

How many siblings do you have?

I am the oldest of five. I have two younger sisters who are 18 and go to that big trashy college in Morgantown, West Virginia, a younger brother who is six and the smartest and coolest little brother ever and the world’s cutest baby sister ever who I don’t think wipes her butt yet. I also have two younger cousins who are basically my siblings too because our parents are siblings and we grew up closer than any other cousins I know. The bond I have with them is stronger than any bond I have with anyone and I don’t see that ever changing.

Where do you see yourself in 5 to 10 years?

Hopefully 10 years from now I’ll be in a better place than I am now, but I just want to be happy. So, to answer your question, I just want to be happy whether its five years or its 25 years from now.
